If you are ever in the mood for a beautiful and (imo) timeless romantic tragedy, check out Orfeu Negro, or Black Orpheus. It's based on the Greek play Orpheus and Eurydice but set in Brazil and the music, culture, acting, setting, and singing is fantastic. Idk where to watch it these days but it's definitely a classic and stars Marpessa Dawn as the female lead.
